I hope everyone had a great THANKSGIVING, as we decided to forego our regular Thursday and Saturday posts. This week though, has started out with a bang so its back to the grind and what follows is our Japanese lesson for the day, oh you didn't know we were learning Japanese? Now we are! Enjoy!
And what hopefully will turn into a full campaign, but here is the first tell us what you think.
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday thoughts of family gathered around with good food and laughter are the thoughts in our head. I came along this video, it has nothing to do with the holidays, but I do think it captured the season beautifully ...Enjoy.
There is a quote that
says, “If you want to go somewhere, it is best to find someone who has already
been there. ~ R. Kiyosaki”
In the early stages
developing ABLE ABE Clothing/Studios there was a huge learning curve that had
to be addressed being there were numerous mistakes and over sights that just
were not helping our progress in building momentum as a brand.
So we looked at other
brands doing the things we would like to be doing, those which has inspired us, and
those who were making real buzz in the industry. One of those people was Jeff
Staple of Staple Design and Reed Space, not to forget to mention numerous other
projects and collaborations.
He has become a great influence on
ABLE ABE due to his view points on design, pop culture, hip hop, and keen
business sense. Sometimes we find it is strange someone we’ve never meet clear
across the country living on the Lower East Side of New York could be so
influential to us here in California.
So what follows, is some
video interviews featuring Jeff Staple in his own words telling his story,
personal insights, which shows why he is such an influence on us at ABLE ABE
In the previous post we showed some behind the scenes looks to our first ever calendar for 2012. This project has developed over time with a simple idea of doing something BIG, something that could be repeated and generate some BUZZ for the brand, and this was it. And no matter where it ends up, or how the end product turns out what follows are a few examples of the simple ideas that started it all.
And speaking about BUZZ I've been hearing a lot about this girl IGGY AZALEA, so we checked her out, and found these videos. Tell us what you think, is she the one who's got next?
As the the holidays and the New Year draws closer we are slamming the gas pedal to the max to finish our first ever calendar for 2012.
The whole process has been a great experience for all involved, as well as a lot of work. Yes, we are working with some lovely local models, a master hair and make up artist in Marie Fuentes and a list of assistants who help make everything GO!
So what follows is a few snap shots on location of our last two calendar shoots. Enjoy, as more updates and behind the scene photos to come.
Here another artist I've recently been listening to and got the endorsement from listening to DOM KENNEDEY. His name is CASEY VEGGIES, (Great name) he is another LA native who looks to be doing some BIG things very soon. CHECK EM' OUT!
Well after a day of shooting with two lovely models I would've hope to of have more time to write up a lengthy posts on one subject or another, but I think its time to just celebrate. No its no ones birthday, not a holiday just yet, or even some one's anniversary, its just feels like time to CELEBRATE LIFE!
Today was one of those days you just feel like staying in bed or settling in with a good movie or book. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible today with so much to do, but we did find this video for those of you who could keep it POSTED. LMFAO Enjoy.
As we all do, life is a matter of survival. Sometimes we may not know what to do, so you do what you know. For Able Abe Studios/Clothing and any other future ventures we may pursue, to have success we have to learn from those who came before, which leads me to Steve Stoute and The Tanning Effect. What follows is the first installment of a video series giving you that insider view behind success. Enjoy.
